San Antonio, TX (April 10, 2012) – Benefits Selling magazine, published by Summit Business Media, announced today that Brandon Scarborough has been named the 2012 Broker of the Year at the 8th Annual Benefits Selling Expo in San Antonio, Texas. Benefits Selling’s Broker of the Year is one of the industry's most prestigious awards and identifies brokers and consultants who have influenced the benefits industry in a positive way.
Brandon Scarborough, co-founder of Power Group worksite division and PowerEnroll at Power Group Cos. in Overland Park, Kansas, founded Benefit Design Group, because it allowed him to focus strictly on providing voluntary benefits to low-wage workers employed by nursing homes. Scarborough continued his business until he merged with Power Group Cos. in 2007 when the company wanted him to run a new worksite division. For Scarborough, the appeal of the benefits industry centers on the opportunity to help a wide range of clients. Whether a group is small or large, Scarborough can help that client find a plan that fits best for its unique needs. Read more.
